|Lassa pur ch’el mond el disa
ma a Milan se stà benon
on bel piatt de busecca con dent i borlott
e on òss buss cont intorna el risòtt
e on litròtt de quel bon, cont on bel minestron
fann content ogni milaneson.
|Just leave the world speaking
But in Milan you are fine
With a good plate of busecca with borlotti beans inside
And an ossobuco with risotto around
And with a liter of good wine and a nice minestrone,
Everyone from Milan is happy
